LVMH announced a 15% year-over-year drop in first quarter sales to 10.6 billion euros. In organic data, this decline stands at 17%.

 

By the end of March, the group and its 75 houses (including Louis Vuitton, Dior, Guerlain, Sephora, Dom Pérignon and Bulgari) had indicated that they expected sales to fall by between -10% and -20% in the first quarter.

 

 

Variable gross salary of 2.2 million euros in 2019

 

LVMH demonstrates good resilience in an economic environment disrupted by a serious health crisis,” the group said in its press release.

 

The closings of production sites and stores in most countries of the world during the first semester will have an impact on sales and annual results“, which “cannot be precisely assessed at this stage, without knowing the return schedule to normal in the different implantation zones ”, according to LVMH.

 

We can only hope that the recovery will take place gradually from May or June after a second quarter which should still be very affected by the crisis, especially in Europe and the United States,” warns the group.

 

LVMH also announces that Bernard Arnault and “each of the other directors exercising executive functions” – Antonio Belloni, Nicolas Bazire, Delphine Arnault and Antoine Arnault – have decided to “renounce their remuneration for the months of April and May 2020 as well as to any variable compensation for the year 2020 “.

 

Concerning Mr. Arnault – first fortune of France and third world according to the classification of Forbes – the amount of his variable gross salary will be fixed only at the end of the current exercise, but for comparison, that which will be subjected to Shareholder vote in June for 2019 amounted to 2.2 million euros.

 

The group will also propose, at the general meeting of shareholders on June 30, to reduce the dividend initially proposed for 2019 by 30%, which would thus amount to 4.80 euros.
